If he doesn’t get elected this year, former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson maybe should make a career move to TV comedy.
In case you haven’t noticed, Johnson is everywhere these days, on television, on the web and in the newspapers. With political tumult surrounding the major party candidates, Johnson – the Libertarian Party’s presidential nominee, on the ballot in all 50 states – is getting all kinds of attention from news organizations, both real and fake. Some polls show him as the choice of 10 percent of the potential voters and, if gets that up to 15 percent, Johnson would be on the debate stage with Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.
Comedian Samantha Bee, like HBO’s John Oliver, a graduate of the Jon Stewart academy of fake news anchors, had Johnson on her TBS show “Full Frontal” on Monday.
